Authorized

There is nothing like knowing,
One's own struggle to undo...
And when to ignore,
The advice given by another...
Who has not a clue what to do,
With their own struggles...
If not directed by someone read,
Who has been authorized...
By a book published,
That has listed credits given to others...
For revealing their 'helpful' problems.
Giving to them 'thanks'.
And not one has a testimony,
Of stating they are now trouble free.
But had been used for research purposes.

Yes, that is what happens now..Good thought!
But is this not the purpose behind literacy? It's not a question of authority in the words they speak. But instead what do they teach? The falsification of a past history can be misleading, of this I can totally agree. Does this mean we deny them the equal right to write. Because they lied about their qualifications. I have no degree, I have no money, therefore I don't get seen. I could be the best in the world but still you won't even look at me. So comes the defeat. But in deceit some succeed. To survive by being a cheat. If I'm not accomplished some day I might just be. If patients is given its dues. But it is a question of who can afford to. Those with a true virtue do.
